Got my 1.3 carat E color excellen round brilliant cut, excellent polish symmetry and no flourescence ring. Petite pave platinum setting.
Had a lady visually appraise it and was bummed she said it looked more like a G color.
wondering what your d and e color rings look like in various lights? Is it supposed to be whiter reflecting no color?
worried we wasted money on an E quality ring if it’s not as white as it should be…

Different lightings will make your stone look different. Here’s my D color diamond looking super green under a tree on a sunny day.

Thanks! I read the better colors don’t have any color but I guess since it’s reflecting off objects it makes total sense! Still don’t understand the appraisal process and why the lady thinks it’s a G when it’s an E. That’s prob in another thread about the ceiteria for the geologists.

jolieqe: what does the paper work say? Does it have a GIA cert? Mine was appraised right through the jeweler it was purchased from, and it matches what my GiA cert says.

jolieqe: It will definitely reflect different colors that are around it. My center stone is a D with no flourescence, and I have a picture of it looking red/pink-ish because it reflected back the color of my phone case. Also, the picture was taken close to sundown, so it was reflecting back the reddish colors in the sky, too.
Here it is in a different kind of lighting, looking much whiter:
And one more picture, where I think it was reflecting off of the blue sky. (Not the greatest picture, but I wanted to show you the blue color).
